Via ABC News:

WAUKESHA, Wis.—Rep. Paul Ryan wiped away tears as he made his first appearance as Mitt Romney’s running mate in his home state, telling a crowd of 10,000 people here that the upcoming election is a “special moment” not just for him, but for the country.

Arriving here at an early evening rally, Romney and Ryan made what can only be described as a movie star entrance, riding in on the Romney campaign bus and then making their way through the crowd to the soundtrack of the movie, “Air Force One.”

Upon taking the stage, Ryan become visibly emotional, wiping his eyes. He blew kisses to the crowd. His first words on the stump were, “Hi, Mom.”

Joking that half the crowd were his relatives, Ryan talked up his Midwestern roots and his love for his home state.

“My veins run with cheese, bratwurst, and a little Spotted Cow and some Millers,” Ryan said, his voice cracking with emotion. “I even think ice fishing is interesting.”

Some Tweeps captured the moment on Twitter :

What’s not to love?

    I like this pairing. I think these men are going to do what they’ve said they will do if they get the chance. Moreover, if they can’t, I’m not sure anyone can.
